No joy with these end of year lists yet but I'm thinking the key is to wait until about December 30th to post top 10 albums and top 10 movies and only include stuff I've heard/seen between now and then, thus reducing the odds of my list and every other list looking quite similar.
Ah no, I wouldn't do that to you.
But, I can download loads of small films that never made it over here for the next week or so and try to make some recommendations for DVD purchases in 2009.
For Xmas, you should really be looking for the Zodiac special edition DVD, brimming with brilliant extras, and There Will Be Blood special edition too. It seems that Blu Ray is the future and those Blu Ray discs need to be coupled with HD televisions so...time to start that life of crime.
Quint over at Aintitcool has compiled a mind-boggling selection of Christmas present movie stuff which you probably won't buy at this stage but I bookmarked so much shit off it, my laptop melted with sheer excitement. Some of the toys are absolutely (geekily) amazing.
Browsing this list in work will lead to at least 3 hours of non-productivity. You have been warned.
